A Novel Idea!: Origin - 2018

Origin

Review by Allison W.

= Read & Recommend

Robert Langdon is back in what is possibly Dan Brown’s most thought-provoking novel yet. In true Dan Brown fashion, Origin wonders aloud whether God will survive science and sends the beloved Harvard professor on another trail of symbols, clues, and heart-pounding danger. The suspense begins when Langdon arrives at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao to attend the announcement of a discovery made by good friend and billionaire futurist, Edmond Kirsch. Kirsch’s announcement is sure to change the world, but it becomes evident very quickly that there are those in Bilbao who want to keep the world the way that it is. When threat is turned on Langdon, he must plunge himself into religious history to ensure the success of Kirsch’s scientific future.

Expertly fast-paced and wonderfully engrossing, Brown’s latest volume is sure to become a favorite along with the likes of The DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons.
